Tempelhof suburb

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tempelhofer Vorstadt (1861–1920)

The area of ​​the Tempelhofer Vorstadt corresponds to today's district region II of the Berlin district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg . It includes the part of the Kreuzberg district that lies south of the Landwehr Canal. It borders the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district in the south and west , the southern Friedrichstadt in the north and the southern Luisenstadt in the east , which are also in the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district. It covers an area of ​​approx. 473 hectares with 63,540 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2015).

Originally the area belonged to the Tempelhofer Feldmark and consisted largely of arable land. It was incorporated into Berlin in 1861 and formed its own district there until 1920, at that time also called Tempelhofer Revier. When the 20 districts were formed as part of the expansion of the city to Greater Berlin in 1920, the Tempelhofer Vorstadt merged with part of Luisenstadt , southern Friedrichstadt and Upper Friedrichsvorstadt in the newly formed VII district Hallesches Tor , which was renamed Kreuzberg in 1921 . The population rose from 23,671 in 1867 to 164,902 in 1910. In 2011, District Region II still had 59,787 inhabitants.

The location survived the Second World War and, above all, the heaviest air raid in February 1945, in contrast to the more centrally located southern Friedrichstadt, largely undamaged. The old buildings from the 19th century are therefore much denser here. The area of ​​the Tempelhofer Vorstadt is now often called " Kreuzberg 61 " after a former postal district .

The Berlin Carnival of Cultures is held every year in the Tempelhofer Vorstadt .
